||Iristay’s work is about the intersectional space of cross cultural identity. Her work is a representation of identity created in the in-between spaces with a critical look at the cultural traditions she has personally experienced; specifically as they relate to religion, gender, and custom. Iristay creates installations that question social and political platforms. As part of the narrative her ceramics are created using Turkish techniques and the clay is harvested from Mexican soil, representing two of her identities.
Iristay was born in 1979 in Izmir, Turkey and currently lives between San Diego and Ensenada, Mexico. She has recently exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; the San Diego Art Institute; SOFA Chicago; Miami Red Dot Art Fair Miami; and the Los Angeles Art Fair.
Beliz Iristay\'s exhibition is open to everyone free of charge. Visit the exhibition at Lux Art Institute by reserving a free time-slot reservation in advance of your visit.
